an increase in the earned income tax credit yesterday in their budget. they are going to pan that. they have no intention of helping the folks earning minimum wage in our country. you know what, republicans, they should tell the truth. they should tell america that they want people to work for 40 hours a week and still live in poverty. that's what republicans are in essence saying. >> well, your state, voters at least, are big supporters of this. the recent poll shows that 71%, overwhelming numbers, in general for the idea of raising the minimum wage. and when you get more specific to $10.10 an hour, it's still a pretty strong 62%. is that how, though, this is more likely to go, is it going to be state-to-state, or do you think there is real hope for a federal minimum wage hike to $10.10? >> well, there are states that lead on the minimum wage. connecticut is one of those, vermont is one of those, washington is one of those, washington state, washington, d.c., for that matter, is another location. so i think states will lead, but i predict that the political pressure for republicans is going
. committee that has spent your tax dollars and resources investigating the irs and its oversight for politically active nonprofit. committee chair isa is again led the attack as republicans try to find any proof that officials at the agency were directed to conduct audits of conservative groups that spent money in the last two elections. the republican conspiracy theory is that the audits were politically motivated, and they insinuate that they may have been directed by the white house. despite the incurable fever for this story on the right and in conservative media, issa's committee has yet to turn up any actual evidence. so today, once again, the oversight committee called former top irs official lois lerner to testify. and issa asked a series of ten questions to which lerner, as highway is did more than nine months ago, pleaded the fifth each time. they gavelled the hearing to a close less than 12 minutes after it began and without allowing a single democratic member to ask a question. the democrats' ranking member elijah cummings, was not having it. for 90 second after issa
